More than 100 million people worldwide have been infected by COVID-19 to date, according to data compiled by the Johns Hopkins University.

While 55 million people have recovered, the highly contagious disease has also claimed the lives of more than two million people.

The United States, India and Brazil have emerged as the countries with the highest number of confirmed cases and deaths.
